Women

No woman is really an insider in the institutions fathered by masculine consciousness. When we allow ourselves to believe we are, we lose touch with parts of ourselves defined as unacceptable by that consciousness; with the vital toughness and visionary strength of the angry grandmothers, the fierce market women of the Ibo's Women's War, the marriage-resisting women silk workers of pre-Revolutionary China, the millions of widows, midwives, and the women healers tortured and burned as witches for three centuries in Europe.
- Rich, Adrienne
Women Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Women

1.
A woman cannot do the thing she ought, which means whatever perfect thing she can, in life, in art, in science, but she fears to let the perfect action take her part and rest there: she must prove what she can do before she does it, -- prate of woman's rights, of woman's mission, woman's function, till the men (who are prating, too, on their side) cry,A woman's function plainly is... to talk. Poor souls, they are very reasonably vexed!
Browning, Elizabeth Barrett

2.
No men who really think deeply about women retain a high opinion of them; men either despise women or they have never thought seriously about them.
Weininger, Otto

3.
The one woman who never gives herself is your free woman, who is always giving herself.
Lawrence, D. H.

4.
What breadth, what beauty and power of human nature and development there must be in a woman to get over all the palisades, all the fences, within which she is held captive!
Herzen, Alexander

5.
Slavery it is that makes slavery; freedom, freedom. The slavery of women happened when the men were slaves of kings.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

6.
Don't you realize that as long as you have to sit down to pee, you'll never be a dominant force in the world? You'll never be a convincing technocrat or middle manager. Because people will know. She's in there sitting down.
Delillo, Don

7.
Women still remember the first kiss after men have forgotten the last.
Gourmont, Remy De

8.
As a woman I have no country. As a woman my country is the whole world.
Woolf, Virginia

9.
A man's women folk, whatever their outward show of respect for his merit and authority, always regard him secretly as an ass, and with something akin to pity. His most gaudy sayings and doings seldom deceive them; they see the actual man within, and know him for a shallow and pathetic fellow. In this fact, perhaps, lies one of the best proofs of feminine intelligence, or, as the common phrase makes it, feminine intuition.
Mencken, H. L.

10.
There are certainly are not so many men of large fortune in the world as there are of pretty woman to deserve them.
Austen, Jane

11.
Women are most fascinating between the ages of thirty-five and forty, after they have won a few races and know how to pace themselves. Since few women ever pass forty, maximum fascination can continue indefinitely.
Dior, Christian

12.
The angel of the Family is Woman. Mother, wife, or sister, Woman is the caress of life, the soothing sweetness of affection shed over its toils, a reflection for the individual of the loving providence which watches over Humanity. In her there is treasure enough of consoling tenderness to allay every pain. Moreover for every one of us she is the initiator of the future. The mother's first kiss teaches the child love; the first holy kiss of the woman he loves teaches man hope and faith in life; and love and faith create a desire for perfection and the power of reaching towards it step by step; create the future, in short, of which the living symbol is the child, link between us and the generations to come. Through her the Family, with its divine mystery of reproduction, points to Eternity.
Mazzini, Giuseppe

13.
The great question that has never been answered, and which I have not yet been able to answer, despite my thirty years of research into the feminine soul, is What does a woman want?
Freud, Sigmund

14.
Eve is a twofold mystery.
Browning, Elizabeth Barrett

15.
Men are gentle, honest and straightforward. Women are convoluted, deceptive and dangerous.
Pizzey, Erin

16.
We are volcanoes. When we women offer our experience as our truth, as human truth, all the maps change. There are new mountains.
Guin, Ursula K. Le

17.
Of all things upon earth that bleed and grow, a herb most bruised is woman.
Euripides

18.
Women are natural guerrillas. Scheming, we nestle into the enemy's bed, avoiding open warfare, watching the options, playing the odds.
Kempton, Sally

19.
Women are as old as they feel and men are old when they lose their feelings.
West, Mae

20.
Once women begin to question the inevitability of their subordination and to reject the conventions formerly associated with it, they can no longer retreat to the safety of those conventions. The woman who rejects the stereotype of feminine weakness and dependence can no longer find much comfort in the clich? that all men are beasts. She has no choice except to believe, on the contrary, that men are human beings, and she finds it hard to forgive them when they act like animals.
Lasch, Christopher

21.
To be successful, a woman has to be better at her job than a man.
Meir, Golda

22.
Women lie about their age; men lie about their income.
Feather, William

23.
The fact is, you have fallen lately, Cecily, into a bad habit of thinking for yourself. You should give it up. It is not quite womanly... men don't like it.
Wilde, Oscar

24.
A lady is nothing very specific. One man's lady is another man's woman; sometimes, one man's lady is another man's wife. Definitions overlap but they almost never coincide.
Lynes, Russell

25.
The cruelest thing a man can do to a woman is to portray her as perfection.
Lawrence, D. H.

26.
If the wife sins, the husband is not innocent.
Proverb, Italian

27.
A woman is a branchy tree and man a singing wind; and from her branches carelessly he takes what he can find.
Stephens, James

28.
Much can be inferred about a man from his mistress: in her one beholds his weaknesses and his dreams.
Lichtenberg, Georg C.

29.
A man's brain has a more difficult time shifting from thinking to feeling than a women's brain does.
Angelis, Barbara De

30.
The great majority of men, especially in France, both desire and possess a fashionable woman, much in the way one might own a fine horse -- as a luxury befitting a young man.
Stendhal, Henri B.

31.
Just as women are afraid of receiving, men are afraid of giving.
Gray, John

32.
It seems as though women keep growing. Eventually they can have little or nothing in common with the men they chose long ago.
Clark, Eugenie

33.
A woman who takes things from a man is called a girlfriend, a man who takes things from a woman is called a gigolo.
Stein, Ruthie

34.
The woman who can create her own job is the woman who will win fame and fortune.
Earhart, Amelia

35.
Man loves little and often. Woman much and rarely.
Basta

36.
When women love us, they forgive us everything, even our crimes; when they do not love us, they give us credit for nothing, not even out virtues.
Balzac, Honore De

37.
A woman is like a teabag -- only in hot water do you realize how strong she is.
Reagan, Nancy

38.
There is no kind of harassment that a man may not inflict on a woman with impunity in civilized societies.
Diderot, Denis

39.
Sometimes I wonder if men and women really suit each other. Perhaps they should live next door and just visit now and then.
Hepburn, Katharine

40.
A woman who looks like a girl and thinks like a man is the best sort, the most enjoyable to be and the most pleasurable to have and to hold.
Burchill, Julie

41.
For my part I distrust all generalizations about women, favorable and unfavorable, masculine and feminine, ancient and modern; all alike, I should say, result from paucity of experience.
Russell, Bertrand

42.
Sometimes I think that the biggest difference between men and women is that more men need to seek out some terrible lurking thing in existence and hurl themselves upon it. Women know where it lives but they can let it alone.
Hoban, Russell

43.
Most women defend themselves. It is the female of the species -- it is the tigress and lioness in you -- which tends to defend when attacked.
Thatcher, Margaret

44.
It requires nothing less than a chivalric feeling to sustain a conversation with a lady.
Thoreau, Henry David

45.
Men never remember, but women never forget.

46.
Women must try to do things as men have tried. When they fail their failure must be but a challenge to others.
Earhart, Amelia

47.
What a strange thing man is; and what a stranger thing woman.
Byron, Lord

48.
The being who, for most men, is the source of the most lively, and even, be it said, to the shame of philosophical delights, the most lasting joys; the being towards or for whom all their efforts tend for whom and by whom fortunes are made and lost; for whom, but especially by whom, artists and poets compose their most delicate jewels; from whom flow the most enervating pleasures and the most enriching sufferings -- woman, in a word, is not, for the artist in general... only the female of the human species. She is rather a divinity, a star.
Baudelaire, Charles

49.
If all men are born free, why is it that all women are born slaves?
Astell, Mary

50.
There is a growing strength in women, but it's in the forehead, not in the forearm.
Sills, Beverly
